    Building Advanced Displays with PI ProcessBook Online Course (English)
    Sep 24 - Oct 12, 2018 | Online


    In this online course, you will expand your knowledge on PI ProcessBook to interpret your process data in a deeper and more organized way. This is a follow-up course to the Building Basic Displays with PI ProcessBook online course and will cover more advanced topics such as creating workbooks, data sets, XY plots, and SQC charts. You will be introduced to the PI AF Display Builder and will find out how to present your data in an organized format beyond just displaying values.

    Note: Learners are encouraged to use their own software and their own data structures. This allows each learner to leave the course with something immediately valuable in their enterprise.

    Configuring PI Data Archive Security Online Course (English)
    Sep 24 - Oct 12, 2018 | Online


    In this online course, you will learn the skills necessary to configure security on the PI Data Archive using OSIsoft best practices. Specifically, you will learn how to create new PI Identities and assign them custom permissions on different areas of the PI Data Archive corresponding to the security needs of your users. Through hands-on exercises and course videos, you will practice how to tighten down your PI Data Archive security model to allow the minimum permissions needed for users and applications. A guided final project will help to reinforce concepts and skills covered in the video lectures.

    Note: Learners can use their own development/test PI System to complete the course. We do not recommend practising security in a production environment. The software requirements for completing the exercises and the final project are as follows:
    • Access to Active Directory
    • PI Data Archive 3.4.380 or later
    • PI AF Server 2016 or later
    • A PI Interface using PI API and PI Buffer Subsystem 2016 or later

    Visualizing PI System Data with PI Vision Online Course (English)
    Sep 24 - Oct 12, 2018 | Online


    In this self-paced online course, you will learn how to easily build dynamic, graphical, interactive web-based dashboards with PI Vision. This course will be dedicated to a series of exercises where the student is challenged to solve real-world problems using PI Vision. By the end of the course, you will have a working knowledge and new skills to use toward problem-solving with the PI System Data.

    Final Project - Build A Set of PI Vision Displays To Monitor My Process


    The course ends with a challenge to use all of the PI Vision features presented in class to build a complete data solution. The goal of this is two-fold: to reinforce in the student the new skills learned in the class and to allow more time for the student to ask questions and get clarification on concepts prior to returning to their job. If a student has access to their own PI System data, they will use this to build displays. If the student does not have access to their own data, they will use an AF Example Kit with demo data for an industry of their choosing.

There are 11 hands-on exercises tailored to apply the knowledge you've learned in the video lectures. Each exercise features an extra credit so that you can push yourself to learn more than what the course directly covers.

    By the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to create your own custom symbol or tool pane that is meaningful to you and your organization.

    Disclaimer


    PI Vision Extensibility is a CTP (Community Technical Preview). Although similar concepts of this extensibility model will be applied in PI Vision 2018, we do expect ‘breaking changes’ to occur in the next year. Developers should take this into consideration when planning to start building custom capabilities with the existing extensibility architecture. Also, PI Vision 2018 will be developed using Angular 4, while PI Vision 2017 was developed based on Angular 2.

    This online course is available to help you preview the possibilities and power of extensibility in PI Vision 2017. Due to the nature of the CTP status of this release, this course is offered free of charge to you.

    Items to consider:
    • Often a valuable extension can be achieved in a matter of days allowing almost immediate value. For this type of project, little hesitation should be considered to move forward regardless of future changes to the extensibility architecture.
    • Projects that will require a considerable amount of effort and potential rework based on the future release may want to consider the impact of compatibility.
    With breaking changes anticipated, OSIsoft does not plan to change the CTP status of PI Vision Extensibility until the release of PI Vision 2018 with Angular 4. For more information, please refer to this post by the PI Visualization team.

    When the extensibility feature in PI Vision is released for general availability in the future, we will come back with an updated official online course.

    Building PI System Assets and Analytics with PI AF (English)
    Oct 02 - Oct 05, 2018 | Montreal, Canada

    The Building PI System Assets and Analytics with Asset Framework (AF) class provides a working knowledge of the power of the AF Server, an integral part of the PI System. You will learn to define consistent representations of organizational assets and/or equipment and use these representations in simple or complex analyses that yield critical and actionable information. AF allows an application designer to identify and customize the components or elements that make up a process, associate real-time, relational or calculated data with these elements, specify organizational structure via hierarchies or connectivity relationships, and apply calculations or rules against these assets and determine how results should be displayed.

    In this class we discuss and build basic AF elements and attributes, construct calculations, and configure relational database queries. In a simulated environment, Asset Analytics are used to calculate metric data for the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). We see how Event Frames are applies to monitor the production process for downtime situations and for process excursions. We explore the visualization of the information with different products of the PI Visualization Suite. In the advanced exercises we discuss combining the various elements to provide users complex information structures. We will build connections to relational databases and use that information in displays and analytics.

    Also covered in detail will be Notifications which allows users to configure custom alarms through a standard user interface based on any data source. Leveraging the generic data access and template-driven capabilities of AF users can redeploy alarm parameters in Notifications to similar assets across the Enterprise. When operational excursions occur, Notifications can send alerts to a single recipient, a group of contacts, or an escalation team that reflects the organization's chain of command.

    The class is four days long. Class will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. (9:00 a.m. in Europe, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand) and is scheduled to run until 4:30 p.m. We will break for lunch for one hour each day. When making travel arrangement for the class, please plan to remain on site to the completion of the final exercise. This should be no later than 4:30 on the last day of the class. This class provides 26 classroom hours of instruction.
